I love tags! Since it is Halloween, I thought this tag was pretty apt. It was created by Katytastic on Youtube and it is pretty fun! Here are my choices:
Creatures of the Night Tag
Vampire – Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
I love the vampires in the Vampire Academy series (the Moroi and Dhampirs quite a bit more than the evil Strigoi, mind you). This series definitely has my favourite take on vampire mythology.
Werewolf – Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
I love this series so much for all of its supernatural creatures but werewolves perhaps play the biggest part (and are what started the series).
Zombie – This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers
Zombies might just be my favourite scary creatures ever! I am a huge fan of zombie flicks and although it can be difficult making them as scary in a non-visual medium, This is Not a Test gets it 100% right.
Ghost – Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff
Ghosts can be pretty darn scary but the ghosts in Paper Valentine are not really the spooky variety although I definitely think they are well-incorporated into the story.
Witch/Warlock/Spellcaster – Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
I love those Lynburn boys (Jared especially) but I also love that even though they are the ones with the supernatural powers, it’s the girls in the series who hold the most power overall.
Fairy/Fae – Grave Witch by Kalayna Price
Kalayna Price’s take on the Fae is certainly different and I like it quite a bit (even though I’m team Death – read the books and you’ll understand what I mean). 😉
Demon – The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff
I love the demon realm and characters in this book – it is definitely a version of hell that I didn’t know I needed in my literature haha!
Angel – Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
I usually don’t like Angel themed stories (like, at all) but I do love this series and how it spins the angelic ones! Definitely a series worth checking out – even for Angel naysayers like me!
Alien – Adaptation by Malinda Lo
I was surprised how much I loved Adaptation. I can be a bit meh on alien stories in general but i thought they were well-done here.
Superpowered human – Tabula Rasa by Kristen Lippert-Martin
This one took me by complete surprise! I really wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was given that it sounded like a million different things I’d read before. Colour me surprised when it proved to be a fresh take on a oftentimes tired trope/genre.
